  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Cakes

 Ingredients List

  • for the cupcakes:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (from 3-4 mashed bananas)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour (all-purpose flour can also be substituted)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • for the frosting:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (more as needed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350. Prepare two muffin tins by lining with paper liners.
Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then set aside.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the mashed bananas, egg yolks, and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Gently fold in 1/3 of the egg white mixture.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Gently fold in remaining egg whites.
Fill paper baking cups half full and bake 11-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool completely.
To make the frosting, beat together the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar slowly and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and cinnamon.
If necessary, add more powdered sugar until the frosting is firm enough to hold its shape but still light and fluffy. Frost the cooled cupcakes and enjoy!
